Abstract:     
Based on a presentation at the Law, Medicine and Health Care section meeting at the Annual Meeting of the AALS in January 2012, this paper describes the impact that co-ops have for health law students and faculty. Co-ops are the four 10 to 11 week full-time legal placements that Northeastern University School of Law requires of all J.D. students. Although co-ops are not unique to health law, they are especially valuable to health law students, providing them with the opportunity to experience multiple practice settings. This varied experience can be especially useful for students entering a field as broad as health law. Students bring these experiences back into the classroom, enriching class discussions. The co-op program also offers benefits to faculty, helping to connect them with practitioners and sometimes, as in my own case, presenting them with the opportunity to become involved in major health law cases.
